My sixty-eighth podcast is up.  What's the big deal about Orcas, er, Visual Studio 2008? I sit down with my partner in crime at Corillian (now part of CheckFree), Patrick Cauldwell, and chat about .NET 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, oh my! We also talk a bit about dynamic languages, VB 10, and LINQ.

If you have trouble downloading, or your download is slow, do try the torrent with Āµtorrent or another BitTorrent Downloader.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

Looks like the links to the mp3 of this show, and the same link for show 67, actually link to show 66.

Dugald is correct, however if you're looking for the podcast you can get it by going to where it is linked correctly as show 68.

Correct, if I heard wrong.... But did Patrick say that Orcas still has .net 2.0 framework underneath it? I don't think this is correct. I would think that changes would need to be made at least to make changes for c# 3.0 and VBx. If not a bunch of other stuff.

"Tunneling languages". I like that. Rather - I'm not sure if I like doing that, but I like the label. Because that's what we do. Programs are such Babylonian towers.
